Surrealist Ragpicker, Situationist Reporter. 25th Oct – 5th Nov

Gallery Red presents Surrealist Ragpicker, Situationist Reporter a two person, photographic exhibition by Petra O’Halloran and Zakarij Zaczmarek.

The photographs show life today – as the artists have deciphered it. Rather than a window into the everyday the artists are able to create a new ‘world bound by the photographic frame’[i]

Unready-Made. 4th – 22nd Oct



4th October – 22 October 2013


Gallery Red presents Unready-Made a solo exhibition by Chidzey. Inspired by the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s seminal ‘readymade’: Bicycle Wheel.

A tongue in cheek investigation as Chidzey pays a satirical homage to art in contemporary society through the lens of Duchamp’s 1961 statement regarding anaesthetic delectation.

The choice “was based on a reaction of visual indifference with at the same time a total absence of good or bad taste – in face a complete anaesthesia”.

An Intimate Dimension

Gallery Red presents An Intimate Dimension, a solo photo exhibition by Rachael Ireland as part of the Head On Photo Festival.

Created whilst undertaking an artist residency in Argentina, Rachael shares her response to the arid & vast Patagonian landscape & elements of settler history combined with the domestic space she occupied at Residencia Corázon & how this mediated her relationship with the outside world.

“My work is concerned with domestic space and the idea of home, and how it mediates our relationship with the outside world. How it separates, protects and confines. I am interested in exploring the divide between urban domestic space and environments that exist at its peripheries, which at some point in history, have been deemed isolated, inhospitable or wild – undomesticated.
Through my photographic practice, and the travel it brings about, I negotiate physical and conceptual boundaries of home, reassessing and altering what constitutes my own sense of home and belonging. Additionally my work is informed by cultural and individual histories that expose how other people encounter and negotiate their sense of home in unfamiliar environments.” – Rachael Ireland

Please join us for drinks with the artist on Friday 3rd of May.

The exhibition runs from 3rd May – 21st May.
